PDP machines are actually quite useful as someone brought them up on here
not long ago. they have to be big from the looks of them.
for editing, I use Vi and Emacs. Vi is way older than DOS ;)
Currently looking for some older machines but can't find any. I don't want
to use Ebay so I'm trying to at my college get some of their older stuff.
Looking for these right now:
A WORKING 286 machine with the software for it.
A 386 working with NIC, at least 500 MB HD and monitor and mouse.
A few 486s because I find them useful. We have one at work I use every
weekend I'm there to play Doom and Wolfenstein
I'd like a couple of these though with NICs, Monitors, A mouse, keyboard,
needs to play Doom
I have this for these machines:
PC-DOS 6.3 (All original, and it works well, I got it to install on a 2.40
GHz processor box with 128 MB Nvidia card and an 80 GB HD and 512 RAM. It
didn't find all of it but it booted. DOS looks cool on a 17 inch monitor
